Shamanic Healing… and the Shaman’s Way

Perhaps it is because of how much I have seen this label misused; and with kind of an underlying arrogant assertion as to an individual’s power and mastery of connection toContinue reading “Shamanic Healing… and the Shaman’s Way”

When Everything Crumbles…

… To come back together again more perfectly. The other morning I was sitting on my balcony, sharing a smoke of tobacco with my partner.
